DIED--At his residence in Fairview Twp. Oct. 28, 1880, William Soesbe, aged 74 years, 3 months and 7 days.

The deceased was the son of Daniel Soesbe, who was with Washington at Valley Forge, and continued in the service of his country to the end of the war, after which he moved from Virginia to Bath Co. Kentucky where William was born, July 21, 1806. When he was 8 years old his father moved to Vigo Co. Indiana where William grew to manhood and was married to Angelina Buckner in 1831. In 1841 he came to Burlington, Iowa, and from thence he moved to Lee Co. In 1843 he came to Jones county and opened up a farm, enduring all the hardships of an early settler of the county. Selling out there, he came to Fairview Township, where he resided till the day of his death.

He was the father of nine children, seven of whom are living and were present, with many grandchildren and greatgrandchildren to minister to his wants and comfort him during the day of his death. Twenty-eight years ago he joined the United Brethren and continued a member of the church until it ceased to exist. He afterward became a member of the M.E. Church and so remained until his death.

Many will remember him for his many good qualities of mind and heart. As an excellent neighbor, a kind husband and a loving father, his death is indeed a loss to them. But he had "set his house in order" and was prepared to go at his master's call. While they mourn, he, no doubt, rejoices. The funeral services were held at his late residence and were conducted by Rev. James Mitchell, pastor of the Baptist church at Fairview.

Der Sohn

M, b. circa 1495, d. after 1563
     Note: Per Holzclaw, the family name Brumbach comes from a farm called "in der Brumbach" near Muesen, of which the original owners were called Sohn, Son, or Shon, but after 3 or 4 generations assumed the name Brumbach. This lineage comes from Herr Schutte who has thoroughly investigated the civil records, as well as the church records, of Muesen and Ferndorf (to which Muesen belonged at one time). Der Sohn was born circa 1495 at Muesen, Nassau-Siegen (now in Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany. He died after 1563 at Muesen, Nassau-Siegen (now in Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany.
